Seattle Times pays tribute to former Stanford cornerback Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman said Friday that he had been released by the Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks cut ties with star cornerback Richard Sherman, who became one of the NFL's premier cornerbacks during his seven seasons with the team, yesterday.

Richard Sherman dined with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan in Los Gatos on Friday night, according to a report from the Athletic.

Sherman is a three-time first team All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl member, but he's coming off a ruptured Achilles in 2017 and he turns 30 in late March.

Seattle plays the 49ers twice every season in the NFC West.

Per Anderson, Sherman said he will start running on a treadmill next week.

Sherman is obviously familiar with the Bay Area, having played five years at Stanford. It's hard to say at this point what the Seahawks team will look like next year, though it's worth pointing out that Seattle still has Russell Wilson, and a franchise quarterback is a great starting point for any National Football League team looking to rebuild.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said. Left behind was a sizable hole in their roster at the cornerback position that new general manager Brian Gutekunst may very well utilize free agency to fill out prior to the draft. He is expected to have his first free agent meeting with the 49ers. The 49ers are a rapidly improving team with plenty of cap space.

A deal with the 49ers is no certainty, as Sherman has plenty of other options.

The shedding of Sherman, Bennett and Lane means the Seahawks now have just eight players left on their roster from the 2013 team that won the Super Bowl under contract for the 2018 season - quarterback Russell Wilson, receiver Doug Baldwin, linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, Chancellor, Thomas, Avril, and punter Jon Ryan.
